Customer Reviews Statistical Note: often a disproportionate number of Texas residents who post energy provider reviews are doing so to make a complaint rather than describe a positive experience. We encourage you to look for patterns of comments to gain insights, and to look at multiple review sites.
In the case of Reliant, they have over a million customers, so even if they have a 99% customer satisfaction percentage, there are thousands of residents who may have a complaint, and these dissatisfied customers are more likely to provide a review. Statistics on the State of Texas PUC site show that Reliant has an excellent record of customer satisfaction per 1,000 customers.

What are problems with electricity company review sites?
According to electricity consumer advocate Home Energy Club, the following types of review sites often give consumers slanted information about providers and their service quality:
- Texas electricity ratings sites: customer ratings and reviews on some energy sites are curated to provide advantages to the providers that pay higher fees. Home Energy Club does not sell special treatment.
- Government comparison sites: a lack of quality control seems to plague government energy rate sites because, like the Power to Choose Texas site, they tend to be rigorously gamed by some unethical energy providers.
- Generic review sites: Although generic review sites aren’t sellers of electricity, some of them manipulate search results for a fee or fail to stop providers that “game” their systems with fake reviews.
HomeEnergyClub.com provides ratings, reviews and complaint statistics for electricity companies from numerous independent sources.

Why does Power to Choose (government site) get many complaints?

- Some unscrupulous electric companies have “gamed” the website with tricky gimmick plans that show very low rates.
- The deceptive rates have caused consumers alarming bill surprises.
- Closing the website has been a matter of discussion among state leaders, including the Texas PUC chairman.
